It has come to light that people in Horsham District's towns and villages have complained of a mass melancholy affecting mood and enjoyment. This is the Grey Shadow, our nemesis, at work, keen to drain the colour from our landscape and infuse jaded misery on the good folk of this beautiful land.
The Curators’ Alliance is entrusted to protect the special seeds that are an antidote to misery. When combined, the seeds create a formula known as ASHENPIPS. The Grey Shadow is keen to destroy the formula!
Join us, Secret Seekers, and help bring back the seeds so that they can be secured inside the Cabinet of Cures and, in doing so, protect the happiness of future generations.
